Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire

A true "50/50" dual sport tire, the K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Scout delivers better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well.

The "chevron" style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates.  This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction.  A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish.

A bit of a harsh ride but a great value
OK, just got back from a trip to South America with Heidi's mounted front and rear on my 1200GS. After 10,000 miles over good roads, bad roads, gravel, grass, rocks, and a log of muck, these babies are still going. Having just put another 2,000 miles on the bike getting it back from the port and riding a bit locally, you would think the rubber would be gone. However, the front tire looks like it probably has another 5,000 miles to go while the rear needs to be replaced fairly soon. All in all, I am very pleased with the Heidi's.

Good: Wear, looks, and grip in various rough, off road conditions. Was so happy I had these puppies on the bike when we got to some of the "roads" in Chile and Argentina. Miles and miles of rock and gravel challenged the rider but the tires were great.

Bad: If you want a smooth street ride, these tires are NOT for you. You will definitely feel the knobs on the tarmac and they will make a bit of noise as well. If you plan to stay on the road and just want something that looks more "off roadish", you should look at something else.

OK: Wet road grip is satisfactory. However, I would not get too aggressive in curves on wet roads until you know their limitations. You don't get the kind of mileage I am getting out of these without the rubber being a bit hard.

Overall, I think these are great tires for someone that actually takes their bike off the tarmac on a regular basis. You can find tires with more grip on wet roads and smoother rides, but I don't know if you will find tires that give you better all around performance in combined off and on road riding.

Outstanding 50% / 50% Adventure Tire
Like the K60 rear tire I reviewed, this tire is not for the people riding the freeways exclusively. A lot of other pavement tires are better for that. This one howls at speed and it "seeks" on grooved pavement--not much, but it does a little bit.
That's the negative. Now the positive--
This tire is in the very top tier of outstanding tires for people who ride on the pavement to get the back country. I ride a DL650 adventure bike fully loaded for camping, etc. Outstanding!
On gravel, slimy black mud, dirt, rocks--I couldn't get it to disappoint me. Drive it into a rut on purpose and then drive it right back up the side of the rut. Or cruise along a little ridge without falling down into a rut.
Excellent tire to get you out to the back country, into the back of the back country, and then depend on it to get you back out and home again.
I don't know about wear, it's still new to me.

K60 - Decent experience - a few "gotchas"
I'm just now at the point of wearing out my first set of K60's on my R1100GS. After getting them scrubbed in, I put on about 2500 miles on-road before getting any significant off-road time on them. On-road, nothing really new that you haven't already heard:
- decent grip
- great wear
- the front tire howls at 65-70mph
- can be a bit marginal in the wet - tend to let go quickly without a lot of warning. I would pick different tires if I rode in a lot of rain.

In the dry and warm weather, I have been able to get the bike over just as far as with any other tire I'd had on, and never had them slip unpredictably The center rib on the rear I'm sure adds to the mileage, but it does wander in loose gravel. In riding down in the AZ strip, it did great on the dirt/rock roads, and I never felt in need of more traction. Tried airing down for sand, and it was so stiff it didn't flatten out at all - really no difference between 35lbs and 12. Deep Sand=not good.
After a week of pounding down what could in some cases only be charitably called roads, with lots of sharp rocks, never had a cut or puncture - VERY tough tire. When you are 100 miles from pavement, this is reassuring. :) Decent traction of larger stretches of rock.
Offroad:
- good tracking in dirt/rock
- wide grooves help keep things planted
- Center rib on rear can wander in gravel.

All in all, mine was a good experience with these tires. As long as you recognize what their limitations are, they are a good value and provide good service.

Awesome tire!
Keep in mind im not a tire guru. I read great reviews on this tire and that's what helped me make my decision. I bought this tire for a Tennessee to Alaska trip. I rode the Trans American Trail to Utah and then a variety of paved and gravel roads all the way to Inuvik Canada, and Prudhoe Bay Alaska and finally home to TN. I went through 3back tires, but the front made the whole trip- 16700 miles! Yes, its ready to be replaced now! The tire had great grip in all terrain, mud, gravel, sand, pavement, even some snow! it is a true 50/50 tire, so it does hum and have some noise on pavement but that is easily overlooked for its performance and durability!!

Great tire.
I only have about 200 miles on this tire; so, take this review with a grain of salt.
First off, my 2013 Kawasaki KLR 650's handling changed completely; it's as if I had a different bike. I purchased front and back k60's and the best way I can describe the change...the bike feels as though it's on knife edges. Turning and corning come without effort; I have to get use to the way the bike handles. I find myself exiting my turns off from where I intended....use to the old junkie tires. I practiced all weekend and now, I am spot on. As far as off road, the traction is amazing...extreme amount of grip on grassy, gravel and dirt roads.

I didn't know Revzilla was in my hometown...haha. I ordered on a Wednesday night and it arrived Thursday afternoon. I love the guys.

Sticks like glue,wears like iron
I bought these tires based on previous reviews and wasn't disappointed .stiff to install but not bad if you use tire warmers or set out in the sun for a while,although a bit noisy,these seem to be the best off road tire for the street.

Great grip!
These K60's have great grip, both on and off road. Air down a bit for dirt/mud - stock pressures on street. Careful in the wet - they're not dangerous, but aren't super-grippy either. I'm a cautious rider in the rain anyway, but it deserves to be mentioned for all of you rain-confident riders.

Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire
Purchased a set of Heidenau's to make a trip from Key West to Prudhoe Bay, AK. I mounted them on my 1974 Suzuki GT750 and 9000 miles later the front tire showed minimal wear. On the trip I encountered about every kind of road condition possible and the tire took it well. Great traction on wet roads and mud as well as dry sand and rocks. Great tread life! Liked them so much I bought a second set.

True 50/50 tire
I'm riding a KTM 990 and am just getting ready to put on another set of Heidenau k 60s. The set I'm taking off has a wee bit over 7000 miles on both front and rear. These are true 50/50 tires. I will ride 600 miles of pavement to ride 800 miles off road. They do not disappoint. If you have a street queen you wont be happy with the mileage, low speed vibration, etc. If you have a trailer queen and don't do the slab buy a more aggressive (read knobbie) tire. But if you truly ride something in the 50/50 range they are not a bad choice. Parting thought, buy a good set of tire irons, these tires have the stiffest sidewall ever!

A little noisy
The front tire shakes the bike left to right until you reach 5 mph due to the offset chevron tread pattern. As you go faster this shaking turns into noise. Noise goes away above 60 mph. They were noisier when new and appear to be less so now. Perhaps with a few more miles they will get quieter.
